OKX introduces 30-day verification for withdrawal address book

Published on Jul 4, 2024Updated on Jul 4, 20242 min read

OKX is launching a new feature on July 4, 2024, 7:00 am UTC, which gives users the choice to verify addresses in their withdrawal address book for 30 days or permanently.

How does this new feature work?

When an address is verified for 30 days, withdrawals have to be made within 30 days to maintain its verified status. If no withdrawal is made, its verification will expire and future withdrawals to this address will require security verification.If a withdrawal is made, the expiry date will be extended to 30 days after the latest withdrawal date. For example, if you make a transaction at 7:00 am UTC July 4, 2024, the verification period will be extended to 7:00 am UTC August 3, 2024.

How does this impact existing verified addresses?

Starting from 7:00 am UTC on July 4, 2024, all existing verified addresses in the OKX withdrawal address book will be placed on a 30-day expiry period. Please review these addresses and if you wish to verify them permanently, try one of the following two methods:

  1. Wait until the 30-day verification expires and verify the addresses again permanently.

  2. Delete the addresses and add them again as permanently verified addresses.
